Paintings by Richard Heisler

We've noticed a trend in paintings that are so photo-realistic as to fool the viewer. We think this amazing series by Richard Heisler definitely falls under this category of "WTF, these are painings?" In his ongoing series of paintings that focuses on the cityscape of Tokyo—its place, its history, its architecture as it exists now—and also pays homage to the artists that have......read more

Travel Paintings by Stefan Bleekrode

With a nod to Edward Hopper, a series of travel inspired paintings we like a lot.

Cubism meets Nintendo in this series of watercolor paintings

Adam Lister has gotten attention for his 8-bit watercolor paintings and in this series, put together by our friends at Faith is Torment, there are a few of Lister's takes on the classics like Seurat, and Hopper. It's a modern day ode to Cubism but also has aspects of early Nintendo games with their blocky graphics. I start with a pencil drawing, blocking in a few of the bigger components of my......read more

'By Sea' is a vast record of environmental change

The coastline of North America is one of the most expansive on Earth, extending from the North Pole to the southern tropics. Like other shorelines around the world, it could be completely transformed by climate change.

Richard Branson: It's not all doom and gloom up north

Richard Branson for The Huffington Post: Last week I was in New York, where policy makers and the public alike spoke out about climate change. None of us are strangers to the realities of climate change -- steadily climbing temperatures and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, melting ice and rising sea levels. However, fewer people are aware of how they can help to tackle the problem. While we often......read more

This compact California home shows off Richard Neutra's magic touch--in only 1,000 square feet

Great architects are rarely associated with modest homes. But the Hailey Residence, a 1,129-square-foot home in the Hollywood Hills, proves to be an exception to the rule. Designed in the late '50s by none other than Richard Neutra, the house shows what a genius architect can do with a small canvas. From the outside, the tiny structure looks like it would better serve as a shed--albeit one with......read more

Climate Skeptic Changes His Tune

read
Skeptical scientist's own research convinces him that the world is warming

Richard Muller, a prominent physicist and global warming skeptic, spent the last two years studying the earth's surface temperatures. In the end, he reached the same conclusion most climate scientists have held for years: the world is warming. That a notable climate change skeptic has "seen the light" is significant in and of itself, but what's more interesting is that the study was backed in......read more
